You have no recollection of how you ended up in a forest. Or how long you have been removed from your normal life. There is a possibility that you are suffering from short term amnesia. Obvious questions come to mind: "How did I get here?" "Where am I?" "What day is it?" "Who put me here or did I put myself here?" "Am I in danger?" "When was the last time I had something to eat or drink?" Some of these questions you will figure out and others will forever remain a mystery. The last day you remember was Saturday. Nothing happened that was out of the ordinary for a weekend. You did some chores. Met up with some friends. Overall had a good day. In the evening [at home] nothing exciting was on TV so you visited some of your favorite websites and then by accident ended up browsing through the projects at the Instructables website [always a fun way to spend a half hour]. Then you brushed your teeth and went to bed. Those are your last memories before waking up mysteriously in this unknown land.
You are dressed in jeans, a flannel shirt you don't recognize, a t-shirt, socks, hiking boots that you don't own, and undergarments [which you hope are your own]. As you get up you see a backpack nearby. The most logical thing to do is to look in the rucksack. In it you discover:
A lightweight shell jacket
Lens fire starter
First aid kit [bandages, aspirin, trauma dressing, ect.]
A pretty thin set of supplies to survive in the wild. If I was packing for spending time in the woods I would also include:
Iodine or chlorine tablets
Step 1: Evaluate your physical condition
Along your arms you discover some bruising. Both knees are scraped and you have a cut along your jaw line. Thankfully nothing seems broken. You don't think that these minor injuries will kill you.
